The Gift Of Brokenness

Brokenness...it is not something we normally desire. The goal in life is to be happy and healthy and productive. When we achieve these things, we believe our lives are in order. When problems occur, we begin to believe we are no longer on our true path.

The thing is, no one's life is perfect. We go through happy and productive times, but there are times when our lives are not so good. We get sick. Loved ones die. We lose jobs and important friendships. Sometimes these things happen all at once and we feel as though our lives are no longer worth living.

It is in our most vulnerable moments the breakthroughs come. At those times, we understand we don't have all the answers and are much more open to new information. New information often brings new ways of doing things and new solutions. It is in brokenness we once again find footing for the journey. It is in brokenness that we find our hope.

As the mystic poet Rumi once said, "The wound is the place the light enters you." Know that your brokenness enables you to be filled with pure light and understanding once again.
